49 Chambers is an ideal canvas for contemporary living. The innovative ‘H shape’ of the building optimizes natural light and views, with most homes benefiting from triple exposures. Elevated ceiling heights, solid wood doors, and up to eight-foot curved and bay windows, capture cinematic park and cityscape views. Light-filled living rooms with chef inspired open kitchens are ideally suited for art collections and spirited entertaining. Smartly engineered, each residence features seamlessly integrated recessed lighting, custom designed Italian closet systems, and floating ceilings, which all exemplify refined design details.
Many residences feature sleek and sculptural kitchen islands, wrapped in honed San Marino marble, with a spacious food preparation area, a Corian sink, and an extended countertop for casual dining.Spacious kitchens are seamlessly integrated into the great rooms with custom Cypress wood millwork, designed by Gabellini Sheppard, accented with rich, honed San Marino marble countertops.
This impressive and luxurious, 15-story, Beaux Arts-style former office building at 49 Chambers Street across from the very handsome Tweed Court House in City Hall Park was converted to 99 condominium apartments in 2018.
It was the former home of the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank and was designed in 1912 by Raymond F. Almirall.
The developer of the conversion was the Chetrit Group.
Woods Bagot was the architect for the conversion and Gabellini Sheppard Associates did the interior design.
